Vincent Kanyongolo started this petition to The State and South Africans and

Coal quality sent to Eskom Power Stations by the 2 Companies given a long term contract (90% supply) is poor quality, which does not meet The Station needs and basic standard quality requirements. This act increase the cost of producing electricity and damage the old stations which are going to be 50 years old in 2025. 

The low quality coal, increase cost & time of milling it, increase the damage of Boiler Tubes (increase maintenance of boilers, regular replacements of boilers tubes, with shutting down the plant, increase unplanned energy production, thus increasing load shedding), lower the heat production in the boiler, produce lower steam to turn the turbine that produce electricity.

Instead of giving Eskom good coal to produce electricity, the companies paid by Eskom to produce electricity, uses the same coal for export and gives Eskom poor quality Coal and export the rest of good quality. This practice is one of the major contributor of current Eskom crisis. Increase the financial support. Eskom Primary Energy Department is Captured and is not addressing this issue.

Give Eskom The Coal is paying for and not rocks and deliberate sabotage it for other reasons, particularly to justify Privatisation, which is dangerous for SA.
